Designers such as those at Lane Bryant are answering Older drivers tend to have slower coordination, age- related declines in vision, hearing and other abilities, ancl are imolved in more tl~n their share of car accidents. As people age, their driv- ing patterns change. Re- tirement, different schedules and new activities affect when and where they drive. Although most older adults drive safely because they have a lot of experience behind the wheel, when they are involved in crashes, they may be hurt more seriously than younger drivers. Many see driving as an important part of staying independent, and people 70 and older tend to keep their licenses longer and drive more miles than in the past. What To Do Elderly drivers and the people who care for them should have a trusted doctor check their eyes and reflexes to determine whether they should be driving anymore. If it seems a driver you care about should be offthe road, listen to his or her con- cerns and feelings on the sub- ject. Explore the possibili- ties. Are there solutions that could keep him or her driv- ing safely longer, such as get- ring new glasses or only driv- ing during the day? Try to arrange for alternative trans- portation so he doesn't feel trapped at home. If she sells her car, remind her of the money she'll save on insur- ance and maintenance-- which can be used for buses and taxis. Having this talk may not be easy but you could save a life.
